Category: Teaser Thursday

Grab a current read, open to a random page (I will be switching by blindly flipping through the page and then stop when it feels right, and using a randomizer online), and pick 2 “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page, write them down, pick a cover, and done.

Teaser Thursday ~ VIP: Battle of the Bands


I used random.org, and (after a few bad tries that landed on a page with illustrations) it picked page 143!

I was eating cereal, enjoying the quiet, when I felt a tap on my shoulder. I switched into Mac Attack mode, jumping, then spinning around to take down my intruder with a well-placed roundhouse kick. I quickly realized I was about to pummel Kyle.

I had my boyfriend pick a page, and he choose page 167.

But that night Miri had barely fallen asleep when she woke up sweating after a dream. Again of the redheaded twins: one was crying, the other sullen in the corner. IN the dark, her joke on the Storana seemed unnervingly real. The little linder house felt crowded with ghosts.
No singing came from the village that night. Only more tuneless whistling, like the call of some foreign bird.

I scrolled through my e-copy, and settled down what was, according to my kindle, page 149.

He looks at me, and it’s just our heartbeats and breathing and the gentle, rhythmic tapping of his shoe. Plus the stampede.

A side door opens. “Crowd’s all checked in,” a man in black security T-shirt says. “Should we open some doors before these girls bang them right down?”

I picked a random number and that was 166

I point to the zombie as it stands up and stumbles down the steps. More zombies emerge from inside the houses. There must be more than fifty. They’ve been waiting for us. I start to laugh hysterically because I don’t know what else to do.

Teaser Thursday ~ Girl Online: Going Solo


I used random.org and it gave me the number 163. So page 163 it is!

It looks such a funny juxtaposition – this modern Scottish boy in an ancient castle on his brand-new phone – that I whip my camera out and snap a picture.

I pop them in my mouth and he’s right – they’re deliciously sweet, with only a hint of tang.

I went with today’s date 6-4, which meant page 64!

Just leave me the things I know I am, like being a good writer.

The way you started was a bit generic, with that lame AA joke, but, otherwise, quite amusing.

Teaser Thursday ~ Dramarama

I flipped through the book 3 times (March = the 3rd month) and stopped at page 133.

Is my singing so bad that they won’t even let me leap around in a stripy unitard because I’ll pull the whole chorus off-key?

So back we went, and heard that Reanne hadn’t posted the ten-day wonder cast until eight thirty -explaining the cluster Wilders who stood around the bulletin board that Morales had left his final decisions until the morning, which is why it went up late.

I used random.org and it picked page 378.

He did not drink, but stared at the black liquid.

I flipped through the book and my boyfriend put his finger where he wanted me to stop. This was page 366.

I shifted from one foot to another, felt the cold firmness of my rapier hilt.

At my side Lockwood gave a sudden soft exclamation.

Teaser Thursday ~ Binge

Teaser Thursday ~ Binge


My boyfriend picked a page this time, and his choice was page 187.

I learned a valuable lesson that day: if your mom is getting married, no excuse will get you out of attending the event – not even the biggest plot twist in Power Rangers history.

Adam and I loved getting dressed up, and a wedding was sure to make us both cry – so we were pretty pumped for the ceremony, even if we didn’t know the couple.
